With the 2015 NFL pre-season quickly approaching, Sports Travel and Tours is planning a series of football trips so our fans can check out the country’s best teams and most invaluable players on their home turfs.
During the fall and early winter months, travelers have eight amazing opportunities to see the Seattle Seahawks at CenturyLink Field.
Having been to the last two Super Bowls, the Seahawks are a hot ticket right now, and their odds look good for the upcoming season. Don’t miss out on the excitement and join in on one of Sports Travel and Tours’ exclusive football trips.
The Game Plans: Of the eight trips offered between Sept. 19 and Dec. 26, seven feature home games at Seattle’s CenturyLink Field. The other, an away game, will be held at Lambeau Field, home of the Green Bay Packers. Check out the game schedule here.
Play by Play: At the bare minimum, trips include game tickets, hotel accommodations for three days and two nights, 24-hour trip assistance and a stadium tour. However, depending on the trip, there are various add-ons and packages to choose from such as this one: All of the Seattle home game packages allow you to add on pre-trip and post-trip hotel nights at the Crowne Plaza Hotel in downtown Seattle. With spacious rooms, exceptional views of Seattle’s iconic skyline and numerous amenities such as Sleep Advantage beds and 37-inch flat screen HD televisions, who wouldn’t want to stay an extra day? For those who have a hard time leaving work or a regular exercise routine behind, the Crown Plaza also offers both business and fitness centers.
Sideline: The stadium tour is something you won’t want to miss. Held the day before Seattle home games, the tour provides unparalleled viewing of behind-the-scenes locations. For devoted Seahawks fans, what better way is there to spend the day than by exploring CenturyLink Field? The tour, which begins and ends at the Pro Shop team store, will bring travelers through suite and club levels and even down onto the field itself. But remember to wear comfortable shoes; the tour covers roughly one mile of walking distance and lasts roughly an hour and a half.
Outside the Stadium: Here are some other must-see attractions to check out while you’re in the city.

Extra Points: We think the key part of the Seattle packages is the quality of the seating. According to the Seattle Seahawks’ website, lower-level, sideline seating puts fans a mere 10 yards away from the field of play. Talk about being where the action is!
Given the Seahawks’ recent success, getting to see a game in person has quickly become an even more attractive experience for fans. Combined with the stadium tour—well worthwhile because it even includes access to the field and changing rooms—the Seattle football packages offer immensely memorable experiences.
